Joma just trying to stay relevant – Palace

By Argyll Cyrus Geducos

Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founder Joma Sison is just trying to stay relevant when he called President Duterte a broken record, Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said.

In a statement, Panelo said that Sison is a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

“If as Mr. Sison says the President sounds like a broken record, the cantankerous steak chieftain of the National Democratic Front is like an echo with his repeated criticisms of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and this Administration to stay politically relevant in the Philippines while maintaining and lapping up his lavish lifestyle in Europe,” he said.

The Palace official then compared the Office of the President, to a “bully pulpit” where the Chief Executive expounds his views and agenda to a greater and wider audience.

He also said Sison is only prolonging the peace process so he can “milk the situation and continue freeloading in the Netherlands as well as enjoying the donations and grants by socialist organizations to his group.”

According to Panelo, Duterte is only right to explain to the people the developments in the peace process since the President already went through great lengths to achieve peace in Mindanao.

Sison had earlier said: “Duterte is like an old broken record repeating ad nauseam his termination of the GRP-NDFP (National Democratic Front of the Philippines) peace negotiations.”
